Stroke counter

Post by Multiracer on Thu Oct 12, 2017 6:51 pm

Anyone install a manualy operated stroke counter on their reloader machines ? A mount, a rod and some fasteners type thing before I invent one.

I used to have a manual counter with a spring mounted my bench. The Hornady lnl hit the counter and moved the number. Worked on the lnl. Have 2 Dillon's now and they are higher off the bench. I have an electronic counter now.

Explain your "counter".  What is it?

Jack H, I'm not sure if you were talking to me or not, but here is a link to the newer version of my counter.

Look at this on eBay

Ah.  I see.  Never knew of that product in almost 60 years of reloading.

I have one on my 550. Micro switch mounts on the powder measure. Display mounts on primer tube. Chinese made. Got it on eBay I think. Less than $50 if I remember. Works fine.

Why?
I just keep count of the number of primers used.

Come on now Dave that's way to easy, plus you don't get to buy another gadget. Honestly though I'm not really worried about rounds through my press, I reload till I have enough ammo for what I want to do. If it breaks I fix it.

Dunno why, but I made a round counter, which differs from a stroke counter, as it only counts loaded rounds.

I made an aluminum plug that drops into the seating die. A loaded round in the seating die raises the plug up and depresses a microswitch triggering a digital display to count.

I tried to attach an image, but apparently I have no idea how to do that on this forum!

That is what I am talking about.... a finished product counter. If I only want to make 78 pcs to fill the 100 round container type thing.

I just re-sent it.

If I try to post it here I get a message stating that I have "0" storage space available.

Not sure how that can be with only three posts and no images uploaded!

Is there any way to capture this data for external analysis?

W4ti, I have the model II. There is no option for any data export. I can not speak towards the current model III.
